Founded by Sherri Borten, A Golden Heart's mission is to provide homeless young adults with the opportunity to succeed in life by providing basic needs such as shelter, food and clothing and teaching them to develop a personal relationship with God, to love others and to give back to the community. Our vision is to produce quality citizens for God's Kingdom and for our society at large byproviding basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing and partnering with community agencies to help achieve success for our clients spiritually, financially, educationally, physically and vocationally. A Golden Heart was birthed as a result of pursuing God through prayer and fasting. A Golden Heart provides housing, food, clothing and transportation for young adults between the ages of 18-24. Clients who are in need of employment, career training, education and other areas are assisted accordingly through community partnerships.
WHY A GOLDEN HEART?
A Golden Heart's services will permit those who are without the basic necessities of life to receive all of the food and water, clothing and shelter they need. Once these basic needs are met, then our clients can focus on employment and career training, financial management,
proper health care, spiritual development and education to name a few. Clients will be placed in the necessary programs available city-wide via partnerships with A Golden Heart and transported there and back. We want our clients to have no excuse for not succeeding in every single pursuit.
A Golden Heart exists because God has led Sherri in this direction. Furthermore, Jesus says in Matthew 25:35-36, "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." Jesus also said that we are the salt of the earthand the light of the world. He says to "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." A Golden Heart desires to glorify the Father in Heaven by helping those He has called us to serve.
